Im a sig noob - What do you think of this SA sig?

Postby Dmourning » Sat Oct 29, 2005 10:21 pm

I've only been making sigs about 2 weeks now. Im not all that good at making neat backgrounds with collages and stuff like that. For a noob sig, what do you guys think of the one I just made for myself below?

I'm no expert but I think the design is decent. SA is a little blurry though. Not sure if that is on purpose or not.

I really like the design of it, but I am not so sure about SA being blurry either. I am assuming that you did that on purpose..

maybe to make it appear that he is moving?

I like the idea, but him not being in focus at all makes it a little hard on the eyes.. there are some other ways to make it look like movement.. Here are some examples that I have done... This is all just suggestions ..... I don't mean any offense by my comments.

Yeah I made it blurry to make the impression of fast movement.

How did you get the blurriness behind the player while keeping him clear like that?

Well first off which program do you use to make your sigs? This will help me help you. I use Photoshop CS.
I just duplicated the picture(ctrl D) make one blurry and put the one that is in focus on the top layer. If this doesn't totally make sense I can explain further.. But first I really need to know what program you use.

And thanks for the props Izzo!! ;-D

I have photoshop 7.0

I think I understand what you are saying. I could just duplicate the layer I put SA in and then blur it and move it behind the clear SA and have the desired effect, right?

EDIT: There. How does this look now? Thanks a lot for your help. Your work is great and I especially love your TO sig.

Really like the revised sig. SA looks great.

One other thing I just noticed, you may want to check the spelling of LaDainian.
